DUSTIN JOHNSON WITB

116th US OPEN: OAKMONT COUNTRY CLUB, PITTSBURGH, PA

This year, the 116th U.S. Open returns to Oakmont for a record-setting ninth time. Notoriously known as the toughest test in golf, this year’s tournament is gearing up to rival the most difficult course conditions in recent history. The greens that inspired the invention of the Stimpmeter are reportedly running over a 14, the rough is characteristically thick and deep, and the course is set up to enable dramatic changes in hole yardages—as well as player strategy—from round to round.

 

In an effort to adapt to the brutal conditions at Oakmont, TaylorMade Tour staffers are opting to shake up the tools in their bags to minimize the course’s most daunting challenges and give themselves the best chance to contend on Sunday. With Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia climbing the leaderboard, expect power and precision to be on full display as we head into the weekend.

KEY CHANGES

Dustin Johnson added a UDI in the 2-iron variation. Like Rosey, DJ dropped his usual 5-wood to take advantage of Oakmont’s speedy fairways.
